In May and June 2011 I had the privilege of travelling in Italy as part of my sabbatical study leave. I visited ancient church buildings, looking at great works of art, soaking in the atmosphere, reading and thinking about art and spirituality and trying to improve my painting skills as I ‘look by painting’.
Just as friends followed by journey in real time in 2011, so you can still visit the special places I visited then, reading my reflections and viewing my photos and sketches.
There’s a separate page for each city I visited. Here are refections and images from what was for me a momentous journey.
